Automatic Water Level Control System
Asaad Ahmed Mohammedahmed Eltaieb | Zhang Jian Min
Abstract: Water scarcity is one of the major problems facing major cities of the world and wastage during transmission has been identified as a major culprit, this is one of the motivations for this research, to deploy computing techniques in creating a barrier to wastage in order to not only provide more financial gains and energy saving, but also help the environment and water cycle which in turn ensures that we save water for our future. In our system used arduino to automate the process of water pumping in a tank and has the ability to detect the level of water in a tank, switch on or off the pump accordingly and display the status on an LCD screen. The system also monitoring the level of water in the sump tank (source tank). If the level inside the sump tank is low, the pump will not be switched ON and this protects the motor from dry running. A beep sound is generated when the level in the sump tank is low or if there is any fault with the sensors.
